I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I evidently had a little bit of a brain fart when setting up this contest (as it was the first time I'd used our new contest system), as I mistakenly set it to announce only 3 winners in the voting round (because that's how many there will eventually be once the First Drop staff and team pick their favorite 3 out of the top 15 highest rated entries that were determined by you guys), when it should have been set to 15.
As a result, only the top 3 highest rated entries are highlighted in the contest as 'winners' right now (and they were automatically notified over email of this), so for your convenience, here's the list of members who's entries were the top 15 highest rated, which you can also see by going here: http://www.newschoolers.com/ns/cult/contestentries/id/4984/cid/2/rid/1/order/rating/
The top three have been notified of the mix-up, along with the First Drop staff, but I wanted to take the time to let the other top 12 know that you're still very much in the running to win this contest, along with all of you who participated in this contest and have been following it closely. I apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
Congratulations and good luck to the 15 finalists! The First Drop staff and team will now be checking out your entries over the weekend to pick the top three winners, and then we'll announce them in the news early next week!
